So far we have two New Year's resolutions for 2007:
1. We resolve to stop using swear words. After hearing the kids use some particularly inappropriate words recently, we realized we weren't setting a very good example. Mrs. Curmudgeon swore off curse words (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) a few months ago, so its up to the Curmudgeon to likewise set a good example.
So far, in our preliminary efforts to lose the cursing habit we're finding it *!#&*!'g hard! Especially on the golf course and while driving. (Let's face it, DC traffic makes it tough to give up cursing; we thought about exempting instances of bad word use when no one else is in the car, but decided we need to go cold turkey.)
2. We resolve to further reduce our carbon footprint on the face of our earth. This year we've made good progress reducing our electicity consumption and using solar energy, but we've still got a long way to go!
We hope our readers will join us in taking the carbon reduction pledge. We'll continue to post tips for doing so as we go through the year. And we'll also let you know how we're doing.
